    gingersnap081's Note:

    The cabbage cooks with the sugar and vinegar to make a nice mellow flavor. My Nana would serve it with potato dumplings and sour bratten. One of my favorite recipes. To make this recipe lighter just substitute the sugar for 1 1/2 times it's amount in Splenda.

      Absolutely Delicious!!<br/><br/>Hands down, the best german cabbage recipe I've ever tasted!! The german restaurants do not even come close. I love to make this in the fall with pork tenderloin medallions. Also, it tastes wonderful a few days later chilled in the fridge.

      Oh, this is SO good! It's like, candied cabbage. If there's any left after DS and I get through taste-testing, I'd like to see what it's like chilled. Super easy recipe that would make a pretty and tasty side dish. Thanks for sharing, gingersnap, we'll be making this one again. :) Made & enjoyed for Fall 2011 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted!
